Time to construct the “Pond”
With the ceiling finally done, the next step in construction is to build the frame to support the walls and liner for the ice. We raised a bit more money than we had hoped, so rather than a simple vertical board, we are able to build some sidewalks around the ice.
For people new to a dedicated curling club, this will be very nice, as it will allow for people to walk down the ice and not be in the way of the team trying to deliver a stone. This hopefully will speed up play.
We will ultimately have 2 separate ice pads, one is a double sheet, and one is a single sheet. The Double sheet has been built wide enough to create 1 extra foot of width between the 2 sheets, creating another place to walk and be out of the way.
